20 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 



MEMOIR OF REV. DANIEL CULBRETH. 

Rev. Daniel Culbreth, son of Cornelius and Lucy Frazier Culbreth, 
was born in Sampson County, N. C, April 29th, 1808. He was the 
eldest of fourteen children, eight of whom are still living. His 
paternal grandfather came from Scotland, and all of his children 
were baptized in the Presbyterian church. His mother was a member 
of the Baptist church ; through her faithfulness he claimed to have 
received his first religious impressions. He was happily converted 
at fourteen years of age, under the preaching of Rev. Bond English, 
of the South Carolina Conference, who was stationed in Fayetteville, 
N. C, and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church at that place Octo- 
ber 7th, 1825. 

He was licensed as an exhorter October 18th, 1827, and to preach 
at Parker's church. Black River Circuit, by Moses Brock, P. E., Oct. 
25th, 1828. 

He was admitted on trial into the Virginia Conference at New 
Berne, N. C, in 183 1 ; ordained deacon at Petersburg, Va., by 
Bishop Hedding, March 3d, 1833 ; ordained elder at Lynchburg, 
Va., February 15th, 1S35, and received the following appointments, 
viz. : 

1831, Trent Circuit.

iS57-'58, Bladen Circuit. 
i859-'6o-'6i, South River Mission. 
1862, Maguolia Circuit.

At the Winston Conference in 1880 he closed an unbroken pastoral 
service of fifty years bj- asking for a superannuated relation. 

He was twice married. On the 3d of December, 1835, to Miss 
Emeline L. Pullen, daughter of Turner and Elizabeth Pullen, of 
Wake County, N. C, who shared his toils for nineteen years, and 
added much to his ministerial success, and died in great peace June 
23d, 1854. On the 8th of November, 1855, he was married to Mrs. 
Elizabeth West Carlton, widow of Rev. Peter Carlton, of Duplin, 
N. C, who was a true helpmeet until about five years ago, when she, 
too, was called by the Master to the reward of the faithful. By the 
first marriage there was one sou, who died of tj'phoid fever at 
Charleston, S. C, as a soldier, at the age of sixteen years. Also two 
daughters, Mrs. W. B. Hutchings and Mrs. William Wynne, of 
Raleigh, N. C. Since the death of his second wife he has made his 
home with his daughters, where his presence was a constant benedic- 
tion, and where he received as tender and unremitting kindness as 
kinship, purified by grace, could bestow. What was said of Barnabas 
(Acts xi and 24) well describes Uncle Culbreth, - " He was a good man, 
and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith: and much people was added 
unto the Lord." He was thoroughl}' renewed by grace — good tem- 
pered, sweet, affable, guileless. The presence of the Holy Ghost 
made him cheerful and happy and successful in being near to Christ. 
His confidence in God never failed. Much of his work was in very 
difficult and humble fields, yet he was fully assured that he should 
have food and raiment, and that the seed-sowing should result in a 
gracious in-gathering of souls, and so it was, and shall be, for man}- 
will arise to call him blessed in "the great crowning day." For 
several years he has been confined most of the time to his sick-room, 
which has been, indeed, a Bethel where the presence of Jacob's God 



22 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 



has been his constant comfort. The many ministerial and other 
friends who have honored themselves bj' visiting this man of God, 
have gone away rejoicing at the complete triumph of grace in his 
rich experience. 

He looked anxiously for the summons of the Saviour, which 
greeted him at lo p. m. January 7th, 1891, at the home of his son-in- 
law, W. B. Hutchings. 

"Life's duty done, as sinks the clay, 
Light from its lokd the spirit flies ; 
While heaven and earth comVjine to say, 
' How blest the righteous when he dies.' " 

Remarks in eulogy were made by V. A. Sharpe, J. W. 
Jenkins, F. L. Reid, J. M. Rhodes and R. H. Whitaker. 

The memoir was adopted as the report of the commit- 
tee. 

J. R. Sawyer introduced the following resolution, 
which was read and unanimously adopted: 

Resolved, That this Conference has heard with deep regret of the 
death of that elect lady, sister Glenn, wife of Rev. E. C. Glenn, of this 
Conference, and that we tender our sympathies to him in his bereave- 
ment, and pray that the blessings of that God who knows so well how 
to comfort those who are in sorrow, ma\- be richly furnished him in 
this hour of grief. 

(Signed) J. T. Abernethv, 

J. R Sawyer. 

The Conference adjourned, followed by the administra-

[Document No. i.] 
REPORT OF COMMrrTEE ON TEMPERANCE. 

Your Cotnniittee on Temperance having given to the matter such 
thought as time and circumstances allowed, beg leave to report that, 
from information before us, we believe the prohibition sentiment to be 
growing. The licensed saloon, however, is still the curse of many com- 
munities. Against this unmixed evil we recommend that every proper 
effort of the people of God be directed, and we take great pleasure in 
calling attention to the recent decision of the Supreme Court, that 
county commissioners are not obliged in any case to grant a license. 

We further suggest that, in every community where there is an 
effort to secure a license, the good people of such community be 
represented in an effort to prevent it. 

In this connection, we call attention to chapter 5, page 12S of our 
Discipline, as affording all necessary instruction to our preachers and 
people. Respectfully submitted, 

V. A. Sharpe, 

R. H. Beerv, Secretary. Chairman. 



[Document No. 2.] 
REPORT OF BOARD OF COLPORTAGE. 

The Board of Colportage has carefull}- considered the work of our 
Agent of Colportage and Sunday-schools, and is highly gratified at the 
success with which he has met during the year. The report of the 
Agent shows he has not been idle, but abundant in labors. We are 
gratified that the Western North Carolina Conference has recommended 
that we continue jointlj- to keep one General Agent in this important 
field of church work, therefore the Board recommend the adoption of 
the following: 

Resolved, jst. That, as the Publishing House prefers that all our busi-

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON BOOKS AND PERIODICALS. 

The Committee on Books and Periodicals beg leave to report: 

First. That we are glad to learn of the great prosperity of our Pub- 
lishing House. We most heartily recommend its publications to all our 
people. Twelve hundred thousand members of a church ought to pur- 
chase more than one hundred thousand dollars worth of books in one 
year. 

Second. The Christian Advocate, our great connectional organ, is well 
w'orthy of our patronage, and we hope that it will soon obtain its much 
desired fifty thousand subscribers. 

Third. The Quarterly Review, so ably edited by Rev. W. P. Harrison, 
D. D., should be read, not ouh' by all our ministers, but b^-our educated 
men and women. 

Fourth. The Missionary Reporter, the Woman's Missionary Advo- 
cate, and the Sowers and Reapers, all missionary publications, should be 
more widely disseminated through the church. 

Fifth We would not overlook the Bright Jewels, published by Mrs. 
W. S. Black, at Oxford. It is bright and breezy and will delight the 
little ones. 

Sixth. Last, but above all, our own organ, the Raleigh Christian 
Advocate, is first in our affection and esteem. It ought to be in every 
Methodist family in North Carolina. We most heartily endorse it and 
recommend it to all our people. We are glad to hear that it is prosper- 
ing. We request the Bishop to appoint Rev F. L. Reid, D. D., as editor 
another year. Respectfully submitted, 

J. W. Jenkin-S, 

Joe K. W^ilus, Secretary. Chairman.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON DISTRICT CONFERENCE 
RECORDS. 

The Committee on District Conference Records beg leave to report as 
follows : 

The Records of the several Districts have been carefulh- examined, 
and, with the exception of some minor defects, may be said to be in 
good condition. The Records of the Fayetteville District are marred 
by the frequent use of abbreviations, rendering it quite difficult in 
many instances to get at the meaning. The Durham and New Berne 
Records are deficient in having no official roll. The Washington, 
Raleigh, Wilmington and Warrenton Records are full and accurate. 
The last three being models of neatness.

[Document No. 5] 
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON BIBLE CAUSE. 

We, your Committee to whom was referred the consideration of the 
Bible Cause, respectfully beg to report, as follows: 

That we deeply deplore the fact that there are still many of our people 
who are not supplied with the Word of God, and that there has been a 
sad neglect on the part of our ministers to supply this deficiency. We 
most heartily endorse the work of the American Bible Society as emi- 
nently worthy of the co-operation of our people. We earnestly urge 
our preachers to take the collection for the Bible cause; that all moneys 
raised for this purpose be forwarded to the agent of the American Bible 
Society b\- the Joint Board of Finance, and that the amount raised for 
this cause be shown in the pastors' reports.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

The Board of Education, to which have been referred the reports of 
the several institutions of learning under the fostering care of the Con- 
ference, beg leave to submit the following report: 



36 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 

TRINITY COLLEGE. 

We rejoice in the fact that during the present year the capacity of 
Trinity College for imparting instruction to its students has been greatly 
increased. The Faculty now consists of 17 Professors and instructors, 
representing the "best talent that the modern educational movement 
has produced." When the College is moved to Durham, its effective- 
ness will be still more greatly increased. With over 200 students, it has 
not sufficient room at its present location to do its best work. Owing to 
an unexpected drawback, the removal to Durham cannot be accom- 
plished before next September. The spiritual condition of the students 
is a matter of profound gratitude to the great Head of the Church. Its 
future is full of hope, and it needs only the loyalty of the church to its 
own College to make the sphere of its usefulness unsurpassed 1)v any. 

We make the following recommendations: 

1. That this Conference make an assessment of |2,7oo upon the sev- 
eral Presiding Elders' Districts for the use of the College in paying the 
salaries of the Faculty. 

2. That the holding of educational mass-meetings be continued 
throughout the year, one at least on every charge — particularly in the 
rural districts — if possible, with the co-operation of the Presiding Elders 
and preachers in charge. 

3. That the work of locating and establishing district preparatory 
schools throughout this Conference, as well as of defining the scope, 
superintending the operations and electing and removing the instructors 
in the same, be put into the hands of the Board of Trustees of Trinity 
College; Provided^ that such schools be built and operated without, in 
any way, putting the Conference under financial obligation, and that 
the properties be deeded, and kept free of encumbrance, to the Trustees 
of Trinit}' College, and be so situated as not to interfere with any of the 
Conference schools already in existence. 

4. That all preparatory schools now owned by the churches in this 
Conference be transferred to the Board of Trustees of Trinity College, 
to be conducted under their direction as herein outlined, through an 
executive committee, to be composed of the President of Trinity Col- 
lege, the Presiding Elder of the District, the preacher in charge and the 
Principal of the school. 

According to the amended charter of Trinity' College, the Trustees 
shall be thirty-six in number, of whom twelve (12) shall be elected by 
the North Carolina Conference of the M. E. Church, South, twelve {12) 
by the Western North Carolina Conference of said church, and twelve 
(12) by the graduates of said College. 

The following were nominated by the Board for this Conference to 
elect: 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS. yj 

Rev. S. D. Adams, Rev. W. S. Black, Rev. J. A. Cuninggini, Rev. V. 
A. Sharpe, Rev. F. D. Swindell, Rev. M. L. Wood, Rev. F). A Yates, 
J. S. Carr, Walter Clark. B. N. Duke, R. T. Gray, T. J. Jarvis. 

The Board report the following as the Trustees of Trinity College, 
elected by the graduates of said Institution, with the respective terms 
of service: 

Six years— V. INI. Simmons, W. R. Odell, O. W. Carr, N. M. Jurney. 

Four years — B. R. Hall, G. vS. Bradshaw, W. P. Mercer, W. H. Pegram. 

Two years— }o\\\\ W. Mauney, M. A. vSmith, F. L- Reid, W. C. Willson. 

GREENSBORO FEM.'M.E COLLEGE. 

Great improvements have been made in Greensboro Female College 
in its equipment during the year, consisting of electric lights, steam- 
heating, steam-laundry, hot and cold water on each floor, a new and 
finely equipped laborator}-, making the College fully the equal in its 
appointments to an}' College for young ladies in the State. The Faculty 
is composed of experts in their departments and are all members of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church, South. There has been added during the 
year a department of Book-keeping and Penmanship, and a department 
of Telegraphy and Type-writing, l)oth of which are doing splendid work. 
There are in attendance 210 students. We most heartily endorse and 
recommend the College to all our people who have daughters to educate, 
and we urge them to avail themselves of the advantages which this 
College offers. 

LITTLETON FEM.\LE COLLEGE. 

This Institution continues to do good work in the cause of female 
education, with increased facilities for imparting instruction. Being 
beautifully and healthily located, and having a competent Faculty, it 
commends itself to the favorable consideration of those who have 
daughters to educate. Their daughters will be well cared for mentally, 
physically, morally and religiously. The Conference owns sixty-three 
shares of stock in this institution, which at present gives it a controlling 
interest. 

Resolved, That we heartily endorse Littleton Female College, and 
request the Bishop to appoint Rev. J. M. Rhodes President of said 
Institution. 

\VE.SLEY.\N FEM.A.LE COLLEGE. 

We are gratified to note the increasing patronage and usefulness of 
Wesleyan Female College, as well as its complete and thorough equip- 
ment for the work it has to do. We regard it as one of our most impor- 
tant institutions and a necessity to Methodism in that part of our Con- 



38 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 

ference, where other denominations are making such rapid strides in 
educational progress. We most heartily commend this College to the 
patronage of our people, and urge our preachers and laymen to do all 
in their power to encourage and support it. 

Resolved^ That this Conference approves of the proposed transfer of 
the control of the property of the Wesleyan Female College at Murfrees- 
boro, N. C, from the Board of Corporators of that Institution to the 
North Carolina Conference, and directs that there be a committee of 
four (4) members appointed to negotiate for the transfer of the property 
on the following conditions: 

r. That this Conference Committee shall hold the property by lease 
at a merely nominal consideration until the encumbrance now resting 
upon it be paid. 

2d. That this encumbrance of |7,500 be reduced out of the annual 
income of the institution by creating a sinking fund. 

3. That this property, to be received and held by lease during the con- 
tinuance of the encumbrance, shall be leased with the distinct under- 
standing that said property, when released of its encumbrance, and not 
before then, shall be deeded as a free gift to the North Carolina Con- 
ference without further consideration. 

4. That this proposed lease shall not be entered into unless the holder 
of the mortgage upon the institution shall so modify that instrument as 
to exempt the property from foreclosure for the term of five years. 

5. That the Board of Corporators shall give to this committee bond to 
title to said property for its transfer according to the terms herein stated. 

6. That this committee shall serve as the Executive Committee to 
take charge of this institution and to make report to the next annual 
Conference. 

Note by Secretary of the Conference. — The Conference appointed 
the following to constitute the committee provided for in the foregoing 
resolution: S. D. Adams, John N. Cole, J. ISI. Wynn, John F. Crowell 
and J. W. Alspaugh. 

I^OUISBURG female COLLEGE. 

This Institution, located at Louisburg, N. C, is under the Presidency 
of Prof. S. D. Bagley, assisted by first-class teachers, and is accomplish- 
ing much good in educating the daughters of our State.

REPORT OF vSUNDAV-SCHOOL BOARD. 

The Sunday-school Board beg leave to submit the following report: 

There are in the bounds of our Conference 583 Sunday-schools, an 
increase of 19. Number of officers and teachers, 4,286, an increase of 
100. Number of scholars, 35,035, an increase of 947. Amount expended 
for literature, 16,416 84. an increase of |i, 153.39. Contributed for Mis- 
sions, 11,384.25, an increase of ^25. 56 ; contributed on Children's Day, 
5360.13, a decrease of ^50.27. Whole amount raised in Sunday-schools, 
111,054.15. 

The statistics for this year show that we have forty more Sunday- 
schools than churches. 

District Sunday-school Conferences have been held in all the Districts 
generally, with an increase of interest. 

From the report of the Treasurer we learn that I526.34 have been 
expended this year from the " Children's Day " fund in helping needy 
Sunday-schools, leaving a deposit at the Publishing House of 1561.40, 
to which will be added the amount collected this year. Your Board 
would recommend, first, that special effort be made to observe "Chil- 
dren's Day" in every charge; second, that our preachers organize 
Sunday-schools in destitute places as far as practicable ; third, that all 
our Sunday-school supplies be purchased from Rev. T. J. Gattis, the 
Agent for Colportage and Sunday-schools. 

We offer the following resolution for adoption : 

That we, the Sunda}- -school Board of the North Carolina Conference, 
will make the following donations to Sunday-schools -where there 
are no libraries : That any school buying a library costing ^25 or less, 
we will donate twenty-five per cent, to amount raised ; to any Sunday- 
school without library raising more than 1125 and not more than $50, we 
will donate twenty per cent, to amount raised. 

The Board wishes to call attention to the importance of securing more 
accurate reports from our Sunday-schools, as the statistics of the General 
Board show that these are often very imperfectly reported. 

All collections for "Children's Day" should be forwarded to the 
Agent and Treasurer, Rev. J. T. Lyon, to whom, also, all applications 
for aid must be made. 

A. R. Raven, 

L. L. Johnson, Secretary. Chairman.

REPORT OF WOMAN'S PARSONAGE AND HOME MISSION 

SOCIETY. 

In May, 1886, the General Conference authorized the Board of Church 
Extension to organize a Woman's Department to collect funds for par- 
sonage building. This organization was known only as the " Woman's 
Department of Church Extension," until May, 1890, when the General 
Conference gave it the more definite title of " Woman's Parsonage and 
Home Mission Society," at the same time so enlarged its powers as to 
allow it to do any work coming under the head of Home Missions. 

Our Conference Society was organized a few years ago, with Mrs. John 
R. Brooks as Secretary. Since the division of the Conference left 
Mrs. Brooks in the West, it necessitated the election of new officers for 
the East, hence the present incumbent's position. 

The meagerness of this my first report is not because of a want of 
interest or effort on my part. During the past year I have written to 
some one in almost every pastoral charge in the North Carolina Confer- 



42 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 

ence, urging them to engage in the work, or those who were engaged 
to renewed effort, but alas ! almost every letter has remained unan- 
swered till this day. 

Knowing the necessity of economizing time at this hour, I will, in a 
few words, give j'ou an abridged report. 

RECEIPTS. 

At the division of the Conference there was in the treasury $56 36 

Received from Wilmington Auxiliary for dues and mite boxes 31 35

Total amount on hand to date 49 87 

Mrs. Roger Moore, of Wilmington, our very efficient Conference 
Treasurer, has done her work most admirably. F~illed, herself, with 
enthusiasm in the work, she has tried to instill it into others. She is 
also Corresponding Secretary of the Parsonage Aid and Home Mission 
Auxiliary at Grace Church, Wilmington, and sends in from it a very 
good report. She says that Aiixiliary is well organized, to which I can 
testify; says that one committee that works in a district, known as 
Brooklyn, has di.stributed during the past Conference year a large 
amount of clothing, food and cash amounting to J109.70. Another com- 
mittee has distributed in food and clothing and cash to the amount of 
171.40. Personal donations amount to $18.50. 

We hope during the incoming year to do more organized Sunday- 
school work. 

And now, though we have wrought but little, we thank God for what 
we have been able to accomplish in His name. 

As a word to the wise is sufficient, allow me, God's humble hand- 
maiden, to drop into the mind and into the heart of every member of 
this great body — aye, of every pastor here — this request: Organize Par- 
sonage Aid and Home Mission Societies wherever you may go, and may 
He who, when among us, had not where to lay his head, crown your 
efforts with abundant success, and build for each and all of you an house 
not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

President of Conf. P. A. and H. M. S.

REPORT OF COMMITTEF: ON CHURCH PROPERTY. 

We are glad to note the continual!}' increa.sing interest in providing 
homes for our preachers. The charge without a parsonage, instead of 
being, as it once was, the rule, is now the exception to the rule. The 
parsonages that are being built are in keeping with the modern ideas of 
comfort and architecture, many of them being models of beauty. Out 
of one hundred and twenty-eight charges in the Conference there are 
thirty-six without houses for the pastor. Seven parsonages have beea 
built during the year, and we hope the incoming year may witness still 
greater activity on this line. 

It is with pardonable pride that we refer to the beautiful churches 
with which our land is being dotted. Even in our rural districts refer- 
ence is had to acoustics, comfort and beaut)'. The old idea that largely 
prevailed, that any sort of hull would answer for God's house, is exploded, 
and the houses of worship that are being built reflect the intelligence, 
the wealth and the devotion of the people. 

The Conference has raised and expended on these two lines of church 
work ;f 1 1,394.41 more than last year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHX D. Pegram, 

C. \V. RoHixsox, Secretary Chairniau.
